Two families sit opposite each other, one on the TV screen, the other in their home. We don't see the program on TV, because the screen the family is looking at is also the screen of the others (specification: project screen image on TV). What we see instead is the family's reaction to the program. This reaction however is in turn the same as that of the audience, because the reaction of this family is also/nevertheless a program for the other family. The whole thing can go on for about 5-20 min. Television in the family/family in television.
